So an amazing thing happened yesterday: Questionable Advice hit the 100,000 tumblr followers mark! I am truly, truly overwhelmed. Way back in the beginning (2010) I honestly didn’t expect any followers for my tumblr made of weird bits of history and when I actually hit 10 followers I did a little happy dance. But 100K! Even if I assume a certain percentage are no longer active/spam accounts/people looking for an auto-follow, that’s still an impressive amount of people who were at least momentarily interested in QA enough to hit the “follow” button. I am….well, sort of speechless. So thank you, wonderful tumblr people for making my strange little hobby so much more fun by sharing it with me. :)
The D is silent?
It’s not exactly silent… more of a vague implication of a hard consonant…
My poor memory of my linguistics classes tells me it’s called a ‘stop’. You stop the sound coming out, usually with the tongue to the roof of the mouth, which can be interpreted as a consonantal sound, but which is actually a lack of sound.
Exactly. A much better explanation that I could give— thanks!
Even outside of academia, I think you have an obligation to cite your sources. Not only is it misleading to use ideas (especially, as you say, extensive quotes) without crediting the original author, it makes it hard for readers to find more information on topics you post -- to learn more about a topic of interest or to find a source they can cite in an essay. I love your long posts, but I'd rather see fewer of them that cite their sources, so people can follow up on topics for themselves.
While we understand the point you are making, we must respectfully disagree in regards to our “obligation”. We are not a scholarly journal and have no formal obligation of any sort outside of sharing our passion as lovers of ancient history with others. As students of ancient history from all walks of life we enjoy sharing what interests us and, hopefully, interests the people who read our posts. That, I believe, is as far as our obligation goes. In regards to sources, we do, most of the time, provide some sort of citation after an extensive or direct quote. If someone wishes to know more about a specific post they may simply ask and we will gladly supply books or sites that we use or feel will be useful to their specific inquiry. However, when it comes to writing, not for entertainment, but for essays in a class of any academic level, sources should always be cited, and the point we must always make clear is that we are not a proper source to be cited, we are not here to help with your homework, and we have no obligation to do so whatsoever.
With the recent media attention to cases dealing with rape or the laws that pertain to such, people have decided to voice their opinions on the matter which has traumatized millions of people world-wide - whether they have spoken about it or have decided to keep it in silence.
Between the women who are fighting for their rights and the men that agree with them - pushing forth the notion that rape is wrong and inhumane, there are people (both men and women) who still believe that rape victims are to blame for their experience.
If someone can be so kind as to explain to me how exactly a woman is to be blamed for being forcibly held down;violated;demeaned;raped; and then told to live with it with no remorse or regrets only because it was “her own fault”. Can someone please explain to me how is it that the actions and mindsets of the offender pertain to the victim if they were not desired by the victim? Was it because a woman was wearing an outfit to which she felt comfortable in? No. She wore it because she wanted to, not because she was hoping someone would be there and y’know, rape her? Was it because she was drunk? No. Again, guys get drunk too but the worst that’ll happen to us is probably getting a bunch of dicks drawn on our faces with a sharpie.
I realize that in recent years we as a general society, have attempted to level the playing field for both women and men; attaining a sense of equality and rationale. We’re failing pretty fucking badly though.
Let’s say a guy is at party, wearing a muscle shirt, sweatpants and, get this, he’s passed out on the couch. Two girls happen to be there who are particularly ”fond” of what the guy is wearing. Would you assume that they’ll put out a massive dildo and proceed to shove it up his ass against his own will? Any guy would find this scenario scarring and probably disgusting. So why is it okay for someone to do the same to a female (not the exact scenario, but the act of rape. Since you know, women don’t have peepees and guys don’t shove dildos up girls butts at parties)?
I have faulted when I was younger too. I can say that - not raping an individual, but things that I was not supposed to do. And even then, I felt more regret than anyone could imagine. I’ve had my friends face the consequences on both ends - being the offender and the victim. Some victims even feel as if it was their fault and vice versa for the offenders, but none of which make sense to me.
I was once with a girl - it got intimate, we started having sex. After which she began having an anxiety attack and told me to stop. We did, and for the remainder of the night we sat on her bed, eating nesquick cereal and talking about exactly what happened. Needless to say, she was scarred and hurt over what happened years prior to the present.
Which all leads down to a single question: Why would you permanently scar someone and turn something as emotion-filled as sex, into something cruel, over a single moment of pleasure? Forever relating to pain and regret.
Looking for some admins yay!

I’m still busy with studying (almost done with the degree) and other stuff, so I haven’t been able to make up any new quotes yet. Not sure if I’ll get to it before the queue runs out, but I’ll see how I go.
Here’s a gif for you all. (made by passacaria)
